Just got a neat little gaming mouse and keyboard, both are wireless/plug and play. They both work and feel very well but i dont know how to get the extra buttons working, or how to configure them atleast. I remember a few ubuntu versions back, the mouse wheel controlled switching between workspaces, is it still possible to do that? Or configure those settings atleast?

There is also an added 3 buttons (since a standard mouse counts as 5 buttons) i have no clue what to do with, i figured once i learn how to configure them, i will have an idea as to what i want them to do, got any suggestions?

havent read all of it but it seems alot of them are having problems with imwheel. There isnt any preset app to configure the mouse control? Anything more graphic?
